Live Oak Largemouths

Jerk baits are famous for triggering vicious strikes from largemouth and smallmouth bass alike. There's nothing tentative or half-hearted about the hit. Imitating a baitfish, especially a shiner, jerk baits light up fat, lazy bass like a mouse squirting past a cat. Shaw and his guest Maria Orlando-Krick fish these fast-action baits on the scenic ponds of Live Oak Plantation, in southern Georgia.
